Kinnard Farm reaches settlement with Wisconsin DNR

A Wisconsin farm that sued the state’s Department of Natural Resources over additional water quality testing has decided to settle the case instead of fully pursuing a court decision.

Kinnard Farms near Casco in northeast Wisconsin argued it should not be required to conduct additional water quality tests near fields where they have spread manure.  The additional requirement in their concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) permit came after the State Supreme Court ruled in favor of the environmental group Clean Wisconsin, which took the DNR to court saying they had the authority to require additional water testing near large farms.
